Romney-Ryan - Fredonia, KS

so who would credit their economic education on a novel and then brag about it? This guy says inflation is our #1 economic priority and thinks 8% unemployment is an acceptable number. Tell him to keep his greedy mittens away from the social security I've earned.  (Aug 16, 2012 | post #2)

Based on consumption i.e. use tax or European VAT tax. Incourages stock market & capital investment. Broadens tax base. Eliminates tax on production & capital distribution.

rentals in/around Carrollton,

It's been almost 18 months since I moved to Carrollton to work. In that time I've meet and worked with many people from the town. Overall, my experience is positive, Crarollton is similar to many small. rural towns I've worked / lived in. Prosperity just passed it by as the town and county leaders are entrenched in keeping the status quo, protecting their own interests at the expense of the town's. Most of the prople I met on the street and in the daily course of dong bussiness were nice and helpful although it was my experience, the help at fast food and at some stores poorly trained and lack respect for customers. I couldn't believe the wages some were making - just over min wage - I suppose the haves want to keep it that way so they remain profitable. So much easier to pay the minimum to just keep above water than inveest in the bussiness, town and people of the community.  (Apr 8, 2009 | post #9)

I have to agree, as a friend of the family and as one of his students, he as a great role model and an inspiration.  (Nov 23, 2007 | post #84)

I was '68 - my sister, '70. My brother was 1st grad year at Winnetonka, '72? Visited my mother and family in Claycomo 3 weeks ago as I was in KC for a friend's funeral. Had dinner Friday evening at El Sombrero with the whole clan. Wanted to say hello to Jeanie but she wasn't there. It was great as always. #5 for me - the old standard. Saturday, we ordered out from the Smakestack in Gladstone - wish I would have taken the time to drive downtown for some Arthur Bryant's. Forgot to stop by In-A-Tub - don't even know if they are still in biz? Looks like I will be moving back to the area just after the turn of the year. Landed a bio-diesel plant design and start-up in Carrolton so I will be spending my weekends in KC. Looking forward to being home.  (Sep 30, 2007 | post #58)

Been a pleasure reading this forum. So many images of people and places came flooding back after so many years. My family moved into town in Claycomo after selling our small farm for I-435. Our post office was Randolf Corner's - now World's of Fun. Went to Maple Woods, then Maple Park then NKCHS. Worked for Don Parret at Claycomo Standard. Bob Barnes owned the Sinclair at the corner of 69 and Randolf in my day. Had many a Italian steak from Bena's.  (Sep 29, 2007 | post #56)
